    Hi,
    just read your post while searching for a manual for such a plotter.
    Can you tell me the dip switch settings for the serial port?
    It has 4 switches for the baud rate, one for US/Din-A4 paper size
    selection and 2 switches for the parity. I am quit happy having the
    powersupply and serial cable, the plotter fires up and responds to
    keypad commands an pen selection, pen up/down forward/backward
    and sidewards. But I actually want to sent plot files to the box

    yours, Rolf

    Take note: The OP's thread is almost 12 years old and it seems he has been banned from the VCF.

    Isn't it just a rebadged HP 7475A? The DIP switch settings should be the same.
